Leonardo DiCaprio FINALLY wins an Oscar

Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Oscar at the Academy Awards last night for his role as a bearded frontiersman in "The Revenant."

Many Leo fans are breathing a sigh of relief.  Over the years, DiCaprio nabbed Academy Award nominations for his stirring roles in What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Aviator, Blood Diamond, and The Wolf of Wall Street, only to walk away empty-handed each time. But the 41-year old actor, who was catapulted to stardom as Jack Dawson in Titanic, finally ended his slump yesterday.

In addition to Titanic, he has starred in a slew of fantastic movies he received no nominations for, including The Man in the Iron Mask, The Departed, Catch Me If You Can, and Gangs of New York.

In his heartfelt acceptance speech, he tipped his hat to mentor Martin Scorsese and implored people to join the effort to combat climate change.

Did you catch the Oscars last night? What's your all-time favorite Leonardo DiCaprio movie?
